I have been working at Novell full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Very relaxed work environment, fantastic benefits, family friendly, free gym, great food at the cafeteria, tons of paid time off. New leadership seems to be moving the company in a good direction.

Cons

Lower pay than average, just about no opportunity to move up. Everyone I talks to wonders if I'm fearful for my job because of the company's history. Novell isn't a new up and coming company in Utah.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit training your competition's employees. Give your young talent a reason to stick around. This company needs new blood to invigorate innovation. Give employees opportunities to make their mark on the company. Give people a reason to make cool stuff again.

    Pros

    There are still good people at Novell. A lot of flexibility doing your job.

    Cons

    Management does not reinvest in R&D. It takes years versus months for new product features.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about the customer (again).
